LeBron James

LeBron took the shots the Celtics wanted him to take, he just made all of them

LeBron took the shots the Celtics wanted him to take, he just made all of them

LeBron James was out of this world good last night.  He hit every shot he took.  He was an unstoppable force.  But it's the TYPE of shots he hit that are leaving the Celtics a little more comfortable with his performance than one might think.  After the game, Doc said I wasn't really okay with [...]

Your Morning Dump… Doc wants the guys to pack for a week

Your Morning Dump… Doc wants the guys to pack for a week

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “They’re not just going to pack for [Game 7],” Rivers said of his team. “They’re going to bring suits for Tuesday and they’re going to bring suits [...]

Recap: The Celtics blow golden opportunity

Recap: The Celtics blow golden opportunity

Why am I surprised? This is the 2012 Celtics. They followed up a gritty, gutty win in Miami with a pathetic peformance at home with a Finals berth on the line. LeBron James was phenomenal: 45 points, 19-26 FG and 15 rebounds. Paul Pierce was phenomenally awful: 9 points on 4-18 FG. James is going [...]

LeBron James making excuses

LeBron James making excuses

Sometimes I read things LeBron says and I have a reaction and I think… I'd better go back and read this again just to make sure i'm not overreacting.  This was one of those times.  But no matter how much I read this, it still sounds a whole lot like excuses. "It's been challenging not just for [...]

Welcome parties explain difference between Boston & Miami

CSNNE does a wonderful job getting us ready for tonight’s game with a nice, four-minute video contrasting the introductions of each newly constructed Celtics and Heat team.  It’s pretty much all you need to know about each team, and why one has found success while the other is… well… struggling with the whole thing right [...]

Video: Pierce’s dagger 3 in super slow-mo

  As always with these, there are fun things to look for that aren't always visible in normal speed or even some of the replays.  My favorite?   It comes at the :26-28 stretch.  It's a guy in the stands between Pierce's shoulder and LeBron's shoulder.  After the shot goes in.  It's a double face palm.  [...]

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

I had a private conversation last night with someone who was forced to admit something that we should all know isn’t true anyway. Numbers don’t mean everything. That’s not to say numbers, in this case the advanced stats movement that has swept NBA journalism, aren’t important.  They are.  They say a lot.  They tell us [...]

Enemy Chatter: Good job! Good effort!

Enemy Chatter: Good job! Good effort!

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. The Miami Heat hit their lowest point of the postseason on Tuesday night but one young child was there to provide a "glass is half full" assessment despite the demoralizing circumstances. As [...]

Paul Pierce drops a dagger in Lebron’s eye

Oh my… If the Celtics are able to close out this series, we're gonna be talking about this shot for a long time. Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7 years… but for a long time. (Video courtesy @jose3030) [...]
